    Hi Holly,
    My girlfriend bought this book for me when she and her husband were on a birthday overnight on the Vineyard! I have a signed copy, thank you. I am so grateful to you for writing this book. I couldn’t put it down! This book brought my past, present, and future into perspective. I think we all glorify the past with little memories of the pain and we don’t take into consideration all of our experiences and how we’ve grown as individuals, and we are where we should be. My favorite part was the red cardinal representing your Aunt Faye, I woke up the next morning after reading your book and just outside my window was a male and female cardinal playing in the tree. I’ve always thought that nature does bring those people we love and miss in death to our everyday life, we just need to pay attention. I did that morning and will forever be grateful as that was my mother and father who I miss dearly.
    Keep writing,
